As required by law, the work of the University is based upon the preparation afforded by the duly accredited high schools of the State, whose grad- uates are admitted to the undergraduate and professional courses upon presentation of the proper certificates. A sense of this vital connection with the public schools determines, in a large measure, the requirements for admission to the Uni- versity, its spirit, and its courses of study. The State, through the University, undertakes to furnish instruction in the various branches requisite for a liberal education in the liberal arts, law, medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, music, nursing, and, in ap- plied science, the various branches of engineering. It also aims to encourage research work in all departments, to produce crea- tive scholars, and thus do its part in the enlargement of the domain of knowledge. Thus it is the general policy of the in- stitution to foster the higher educational interests of the State, broadly and generously interpreted. The control of the University is intrusted to a Board of Regents, consisting of the Governor of Iowa and the Superin- tendent of Public Instruction ex-offlciis, and of one member elected by the General Assembly from each of the eleven con- gressional districts. BUILDINGS The University at present occupies nearly thirty buildings, situated near the center of Iowa City. Some of these are named in the order of their erection. The Old Capitol, the birthplace of the state, is devoted to the administrative offices THE COLLEGE OF MEDICimE 11 and the College of Law. The hall of physics contains the lec- ture rooms and laboratories of the department of physics. The Clinton street building has been remodeled and rearranged and is now occupied by the School of Music. The natural science hall contains the laboratories and col- lections of the departments of geology and botany. The hall of chemistry and pharmacy contains the chemical laboratories and the College of Pharmacy. Close Hall, the home of the Young Men's and Young Women's Christian Associations, also contains the halls of six of the forensic societies; the entire lower floor is given over to the women's gymnasium. The dental hall is occupied wholly by the College of Dentistry. The hospital of the College of Medicine and the hospital for the College of Homeopathic Medicine are modern structures. The old armory is occupied by the lecture rooms and laboratories of the department of electrical engineering. Three small build- ings furnish accommodations for the standard weights and measures of the state, a students' astronomical observatory and a carpenter shop. A modern central heating, lighting and power plant is connected by an underground brick tunnel with all the buildings on the campus. The hall of liberal arts, 120x 260 feet on the ground, contains ninety-two rooms arranged for the respective departments of letters with office, seminar, departmental library and lecture rooms en suite. There are also an attractive drawing and rest room for women, psycho- logical laboratories and a general lecture room. The State His- torical Society library is also lodged in this handsome Bedford stone and fireproof building. The style of the building har- monizes with that of the Old Capitol. On the foundations of old south hall and the former medi- cal hall is a large and commodious building devoted to the engineering shops. The hall of anatomy contains dissecting rooms with the most modern accommodations for 20 tables, an amphitheater with seating capacity of two hundred and twenty-five persons, offices, reading rooms, and a preserving room. It is a hand- some hexagonal, fire-proof building of Bedford stone with granite foundation!. 12 THE STATE UNIVEKSITY OF IOWA The second building in the new medical quadrangle con- tains the general and clinical laboratories of bacteriology, pathology, histology, physiology and pharmacology. The University has erected a large gymnasium and armory for the use of the men of the University. The building is 84 by 162 feet in dimensions and three stories in height. In ad- dition to thorough equipment in the way of armory and gym- nasium apparatus the building contains a fifteen-lap concave canvas-lined running track. The building is situated just out- side the athletic field which contains a football gridiron, a base- ball field and a splendid two-fifths mile cinder track. The north wing of the new engineering quadrangle has just been erected. The portion completed is 70x125 feet and three stories and a basement in height. It provides lecture, rcitation, drawing and study rooms, with separate study space for each student, together with an engineering materials lab- oratory. A splendid new hall of natural sciences, a counterpart of the hall of liberal arts, has just been completed. This build- ing will ultimately be given wholly to the museum and the de- partments of zoology, but will accommodate temporarily the general library and furnish a general assembly hall to seat 1,800 people. A new steam laboratory building, built of buff pressed, and paving brick, one story high and 40 by 80 feet in dimen- sions, has been erected during the past year. It is the first of a series of laboratories to be constructed inside the engineering quadrangle. Unity Hall, a story and basement in height, 55x70 feet in dimensions, and situated on the corner of Iowa Avenue and Clinton Street was secured by the University through purchase last year. It has been remodeled and newly equipped and will temporarily furnish additional lecture rooms for the College of Law. THE LIBRARIES The students have free access, in addition to the general THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE 13 and departmental libraries of the University, to the libraries of the State Historical Society and the free public library of Iowa City. This makes available about 130,000 well selected volumes in diverse fields of knowledge. The reading rooms of the several libraries are well supplied with current periodicals. THE LABORATORIES The more important laboratories are as follows: The chemical; the pharmaceutical; the physical; the psychological; the laboratories of zoology; of anatomy; of pharmacology; of geology and paleontology; of botany; of pathology and bacteriology; of histology; of physiology; and of otology. There is a students' astronomical observatory. THE NATURAL HISTORY COLLECTIONS are equal in extent and value to any found in connection with a western university. The museum of natural history contains the zoological, the enthnological, and part of the geological col- lections. The botanical material is in the herbarium under the charge of the department of botany, and most of the geological specimens are in the rooms occupied by the department of geology. THE UNIVERSITY PUBLICATIONS The following series of publications are now issued by the University: Natural History Bulletin, preserving a record of the work done in botany, geology, and zoology; The Transit, devoted to engineering; The Law Bulletin; The Bulletin of the Homeopathic Medical College; The State University of Iowa Studies in Psychology; The State University of Iowa Studies in Sociology, Economics, Politics, and History; Documentary Material Relating to the History of Iowa, published in part by the State Historical Society. LITERARY, FORENSIC, AND SCIENTIFIC SOCIETIES The literary, forensic, and scientific societies maintained 14 THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA by the faculties and students of the University afford an im- portant means of general culture, scientific research, and liter- ary and forensic training. The societies thus organized are: The Baconian Club; The Political Science Club; The Whitney Society; The Philosophical Club; The Graduate Club; Die Germania; Edda; Phi Beta Kappa; Sigma Xi; Irving Insti- tute, Zetagathian Society, and Philomathean Society for young men; Hesperian Society, Erodelphian Society, and Octave Thanet Society for young women; The John Marshall Law Society; The Dramatic Club; The Engineering Society; The Hahnemannian Society; The Middletonian Medical Society; The Mortar and Pestle Club. Among the purely literary clubs are Ivy Lane, Polygon, the Writers' Club, and the Readers' Club. PUBLIC LECTURES The regents invite during the year many distinguished scholars, specialists, and men in public affairs to address the University. These addresses, supplemented by the series of popular public lectures given annually by the members of the faculties, and the course offered by the lecture bureau, make an extensive, highly interesting and instructive programme of entertainments. RELIGIOUS INFLUENCES The University extends a cordial welcome to students of all denominations. The churches of the city, in which the members of the faculties are a large factor, take a deep inter- est in the welfare of the students, whom they cordially invite to share in their religious activities and social life. There are fifteen churches in Iowa City representing twelve denominations. The Young Men's and Young Women's Christian Asso- ciations are open to all students, and naturally constitute the center of the religious life of the University, while undertak- ing all the phases of moral and Christian work properly within the scope of such organizations. THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE 15 DEAN OF WOMEN While women have always shared all the opportunities of the University on absolutely equal terms with men, it has been deemed expedient to appoint a dean of women, armed with large powers, to act as special representative and adviser for the women in all the departments and colleges of the Univer- sity, whether graduate or undergraduate, academic or profes- sional. PHYSICAL TRAINING AND ATHLETICS The University authorities encourage physical training in such amount and of such a character as is compatible with and promotive of the higher objects of the University. Intercolle- giate contests are carefully controlled in order to eliminate professionalism and other objectionable features. HOSPITALS The two hospitals connected with the University afford the best of care and treatment for students seriously ill. The attention of generous friends of the University is here called to the desirability of providing free hospital service for such students as are unable to meet the expenses incident to pro- tracted illness while away from home. SELF-SUPPORT While it is impossible for the University to guarantee that any student will be able to earn his way entirely or in part, it is just to state that it rarely happens that a student needing to do this fails to secure employment of some kind. Iowa City is a city of 9,000 inhabitants, friendly to the Uni- versity, and glad to give work to deserving students. The university faculties interest themselves to aid the students in finding employment, and the Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. have es- tablished a free labor bureau which is at the service of the students. The associations make a canvass of the city and find work and suitable lodging and boarding places. 16 THE STATE UNIVEESITY OF IOWA The president and the deans seek at all times the confi- dence of impecunious students, and heretofore have been able to give counsel by which students have found the way to re- main in the University. There are provisions whereby such students may obtain free tuition in the colleges of Liberal Arts and Applied Science. OFFICERS OF INSTRUCTION AND ADMINISTRATION George Edwin MacLean, Ph. D., LL. D.

THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE ORGANIZATION The College of Medicine, or the Medical Department as it was called in the beginning, was organized in 1869 but the first session did not open until October 11th, 1870. During the first thirteen years nearly all of the work was carried on in the basement of Old South Hall. In 1883 the department en- tered the four story medical building, considered at the time to be a model of its kind. This structure with its valuable museum was destroyed by the disastrous fire of March 10, 1901, after which the present laboratory buildings were erected. The Mechanics Academy, noted as the first institution for higher education in Iowa, whose corner stone, bearing the date of 1842, now forms a part of the foundation of the University Hospital, became the first hospital (Old Mercy) of the medi- cal department. In 1886 the new Mercy Hospital was estab- lished, and during the session of 1897-1898 the present Uni- versity Hospital was opened. A comparison of the first course of study of two years of twenty weeks each, with the present four years of thirty-six weeks, taken in connection with the marked change in entrance requirements, is an indication of the growth of the college. The instruction of the college is carried on through lec- tures, clinics, demonstrations, and experimentation according to the needs of individual departments and courses. The course of study extends through four years of thirty- six weeks each. The session is divided into two semesters of eighteen weeks, and the semester into two quarters of nine weeks each. 22 THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA BUILDINGS The buildings of the College of Medicine are situated upon the new Medical Quadrangle, which affords space for the growth of the department and the systematic architectural ar- rangement of structures erected. The Hall of Anatomy is an hexagonal, fire-proof build- ing of Bedford stone, with granite foundations. The interior finish is designed to be aseptic. The building contains dissect- ing rooms with accommodations for twenty tables, an amphi- theater with seating capacity of two hundred and twenty-five persons, offices, reading rooms, anatomical museum, and pre- serving room. The General Medical Laboratories are in the second building of the quadrangle. The first floor is occupied by the department of physiology; the second, by the department of histology and embryology; the third, by the laboratories of pathology and bacteriology, the pathological museum, and the clinical laboratory. This building also contains two large am- phitheaters, laboratories for special research, recitation rooms, faculty room, library, and waiting rooms. Both of these buildings are new and equipped with mod- ern appliances for both elementary and advanced work. UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL The University Hospital was erected by the University in 1897 at a cost of $55,000, and $10,000 have been expended recently in remodeling and equipping it after the most modern ideas. At present a new fire-proof wing is being added, which will cost, when equipped, $75,000. This will give the hospital the capacity of one hundred and thirty-five beds. The completed building will be ready for occupancy at the opening of the coming session. The full equipment will comprise a thoroughly furnished administration building, large and commodious wards as well as private rooms, a clinical am- phitheater with a seating capacity of more than two hundred, separate surgical, gynecological, medical, ophthalmological, and laryngological operating rooms, together with a well supplied Free Dispensary, open throughout the year. THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE 23 CLINICS The large number of clinical cases treated at the Univer- sity hospital furnishes an abundance of cases of almost every character. Each case is fully utilized as a means of instruc- tion. Members of the senior class, under the direction of the instructors in charge, make a careful study of each case be- fore operation. Each member of the senior class is required to examine and report upon a number of cases each week in addition to observing all others. The students of the senior class are divided into ward-classes, of six or eight students each, and accompany the attending physicians in their rounds, being given opportunity to study the treatments given, to ob- serve the progress of each case, and to note the dressings used. CLINICAL PATIENTS Cases presented for clinics should be referred as follows: medical, to Professor Bierring; surgical, to Professor Jepson; gynecological, to Professor Guthrie; obstetrical, to Professor "Whiteis; ophthalmological, otological, rhinological, and laryngological, to Professor Dean; dermatological, to Dr. Kess- ler. EESIDENT PHYSICIANS Appointments as resident physicians in state and other in- stitutions are made each year from the graduates of the Col- lege of Medicine. These are awarded to such of the applicants as the faculty judges best prepared for the positions, the successful candidates being allowed, in the order of their rank, to select the hospital which they wish to serve. Two resident physicians are appointed for the University Hospital. For the present year the appointments are: Dr. William Fred Boiler, and Dr. Perry H. Wessel, for the Uni- versity Hospital; Dr. Frank Xavier Cretxmeyer, for Mercy Hospital, Davenport. PATHOLOGICAL MUSEUM The museum contains a valuable and varied collection of 24 THE STATE UNIVEESITY OP IOWA preparations, preserved in natural colors and adapted for il- lustration of the different pathological conditions. The speci- mens are secured principally -from the University clinics and autopsies, by personal visits to the pathological institutes of the large European centers, and by contribution from profes- sional friends. Physicians are earnestly requested to send to the curator of the museum any specimens of pathological anat- omy. For all such favors credit will be given by labeling the preparations with the name of the donor before placing them in the museum. TUITION The following schedule of fees became operative with the first semester of the academic year 1904-5. Matriculation — Every student upon entering any depart- ment of the University (except students in the School of Music and students of the Summer Session who are not candidates for a degree), is required to pay a matriculation fee of $10.00. This fee is paid but once. Tuition — The tuition fee in this college is $25.00 a se- mester, payable in advance. The tuition fee for a student tak- ing half work or less is $15.00 a semester. Tuition fee will not be refunded. A student registered in more than one college of the Uni- versity is required to pay the tuition of the college having the higher rate only. Thus, students taking a combined liberal arts and professional course pay the tuition of the College of Liberal Arts — $10.00 a semester — while their work is exclu- sively in that college; after their professional work begins they pay only the tuition fee of this college. Students from other schools entering the college with advanced standing will pay ten dollars for dissecting materials used in making up deficiencies in this branch. For all hon- orably discharged soldiers or sailors of the Spanish-American war, who are taking a full course in this college there is a remission of $12.50 of each semester's tuition, making a total annual remission of $25.00. . THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE 25 Alumni of the college will be admitted to lectures and clinics free of charge, but will pay the usual laboratory de- posits. Graduation Fee — The fee for graduation is $10.00. Other Charges — A deposit of $3.00, to cover breakage and loss, is required of each student taking laboratory courses in pathology and bacteriology, anatomy and histology, chem- istry and practical pharmacy. This sum, after necessary de- ductions, is returned to the student. For each special examination given at a time other than those regularly scheduled by the faculty, a fee of $1.00 is charged; for several examinations given at one time the fee is $2.00. The charge for rental of a locker in the gymnasium (if desired) is fifty cents a semester; twenty-five cents is paid as a deposit for the locker key. A fee of twenty-five cents a day is charged all but new students for delay in registering beyond the limit officially an- nounced. Seats will be assigned by classes in the order of registra- tion at the University. A certificate of attendance will be issued to each student at the close of the session. State Board Fees — Attention of students is called also to the examination fee required by the State Board of Exami- ners, not the University, prior to admission to practice. ESTIMATE OF YEAELY EXPENSES Matriculation fee (first year only) $10.00 $ 10.00 Tuition fee 50.00 50.00 Breakage 2.00 to 5.00 Eoom rent, 9 months 36.00 to 54.00 Board, 36 weeks 90.00 to 126.00 Books 12.00 to 20.00 Total $200.00 to $265.00 ADMISSION, STANDING, AND DEGREES REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION 1. Each applicant for admission must present to the secretary of the faculty a satisfactory certificate of good moral character, signed by two physicians of good standing in the state from which he comes. 2. The following classes of applicants may be admitted without examination. a. Graduates or matriculates of reputable universities or colleges who present diplomas or certificates of honorable dis- missal from such universities or colleges, together with a spe- cial certificate that they have studied Latin at least one year. b. Graduates of normal schools established by state au- thority who present diplomas or certificates of graduation, to- gether with a special certificate that they have studied Latin at least one year. c. Graduates of accredited secondary schools who present thirty preparatory-credits,* including at least one year of Latin. These preparatory credits must be properly certified by the superintendent or the principal of the school from which the applicant comes, on a blank form which can be obtained by addressing the president of the University, or the Univer- sity examiner. This certificate should be sent to the Univer- sity examiner as early in the summer as possible. 3. Applicants who present twenty-eight preparatory-cred- its properly certified (as indicated under 2 c) may be admit- ted without examination, on condition that they complete their preparation within one year from the date of their admission. In estimating the amount of work required for admission, a pre- paratory credit is regarded as the equivalent of one study daily for a semester of eighteen weeks on the basis of four studies a day; thus eight credits stand for a normal year's work. THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE 27 No applicant whose deficiencies exceed two preparatory credits will be admitted as a candidate for graduation. 4. In September, 1907, applicants who do not present credentials as described above will be admitted without con- ditions only upon passing exam i nations in the preparatory sub- jects named in the program of entrance examinations given below. Any applicant may offer himself for entrance examina- tions in other preparatory subjects than those named in the program if, in the judgment of the University examiner, these are real equivalents of those named in the program, Latin only being excepted. 5. The applicant who passes examinations in all of the subjects enumerated under 4, except such as stand for a total of two preparatory credits, may be admitted on the condition stated in paragraph 3. 6. Applicants who present proper certificates covering all or any part of the preparatory studies designated under 4 for examination, may be admitted upon passing examinations in enough other preparatory studies to bring the number of their preparatory credits up to at least twenty-eight, on the condi- tion stated in paragraph 3. 7. All applicants who are admitted without Latin will be required to take the one-year course in medical Latin spe- cially provided by the University, the fee being $5.00 for the course. This course is not a part of the regular course in medicine, but is offered as a convenience for such applicants for admission as have not studied Latin. The class in this course will be organized on Monday, September 30, 1907. Students who take this course are required to pay the fee at the time when they pay the first installment of their regular tuition fee. 8. Students who enter with conditions in other prepara- tory studies than Latin must pass the regular entrance exami- nations in these studies either in February or in September, 1908. 9. Students entering from other colleges of medicine with advanced standing must present credentials for preparatory work or be examined as stated above. 28 THE STATE UNIVEESITY OF IOWA 10. Any one who expects to enter the College of Medicine in September is urged to send all certificates of preparatory- work to the University examiner as early in the summer as possible, and certainly before September 1. If the credentials are satisfactory a card of admission will be sent to the appli- cant at once. Upon arriving in the city he should present this card to the Secretary of the Board of Eegents, room 101, Old Capitol.

For each separate examination given at any other time than that announced in the following programs, a fee of one dollar will be charged by the University. For a series of ex- aminations covering two or more subjects a fee of two dollars will be charged. THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE 29 Any person expecting to enter the College of Medicine in September, should be careful to learn before the opening of the University exactly what entrance examinations he will be required to pass. He can learn this by addressing the Uni- versity examiner. Each applicant who is to be examined must arrive in the city early enough to be present at his first examination as in- dicated in the programs given. He should present himself at once at the office of the University examiner, who will give him all necessary directions. INCREASED REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION ON AND AFTER JANUARY 1, 1910 In accordance with the recommendation of the American Medical Association and the National Confederation of State Licensing and Examining Boards, the minimum requirements for admission after January 1, 1910, will be four years of high school work and one year's work in college, including one year each of physics, chemistry, biology, and a foreign lan- guage. ADMISSION TO ADVANCED STANDING All students who enter from other schools with advanced standing must comply with the requirements for admission. Students from other accredited medical colleges who have attended one course of lectures will be admitted to the sopho- more class upon passing an examination in the branches taught during the first year. Those who have attended two courses will be admitted to the junior class upon passing an examination in the branches taught during the first and second years. Those who have attended three courses will be admitted to the senior class upon passing an examination in the branches taught during the first, second, and third years. At least thirty-four weeks of study must have been included in each annual course. In accordance with the action taken by the board of re- 30 THE STATE UNIVEBSITY OF IOWA • gents, March 10, 1905, four years of residence are required in the College of Medicine; so that advanced standing will not be granted to , graduates from literary and scientific col- leges. This action is in conformity with the requirements of the Iowa, Minnesota, and other state boards of medical ex- aminers. UNCLASSIFIED STUDENTS Applicants for admission to the College of Medicine, not candidates for a degree, but desiring to register for special subjects, will be admitted to any course of lectures or labora- tory practice only upon complying with all of the regular re- quirements for admission to such course;, or upon satisfying the professor in charge of the course that they possess the qualifications to pursue this course. EXAMINATIONS FOR REMOVAL OF DEFICIENCIES In case of deficiency in any subject the student must be examined in that subject before registration at the opening of the next session in September; but if he fail in more than two subjects he will not be admitted to the September exami- nation. If he fail in any subject in the September examina- tion he will be allowed to present himself for re-examination only after attendance upon another course of lectures in that subject; or only after having prepared himself for such re- examination under a tutor approved by the University. A failure in more than two subjects at the September examina- tion will debar the student from admission to a higher class. The standing gained in each September examination is to be recorded as the standing for the entire year's work in each subject in which such examination is given. A student who fails in only one subject in the September examination will be conditioned in that subject and allowed to take the next year's work; but he must remove the condi- tion by the end of that year. All students having deficiencies in the medical work will appear for examination according to the following schedule: THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE 31 FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20 SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 Surgery, 8:00 a.m. Histology, 8:00 a.m. Medicine, 9:00 a.m. Physiology, 9:00 a.m. Obstetrics, 10:00 a. m.

The candidate must be twenty-one years of age. 2. He must be known to be of good moral character. 3. His time of study must include attendance upon at least four full courses of lectures, the last of which must be taken in this institution. The time occupied by each of the four courses of lectures, shall not be less than thirty-four weeks, and no two of the four courses shall be within the same year. 4. His deportment during the time must have been sat- isfactory to the professors and instructors of each department. 5. His attendance upon all lectures, clinics, and other in- struction in the course must have been in accordance with the requirements of the college. 6. He must have passed a satisfactory examination in each of the branches of study of the curriculum. 7. Students of the senior class who are candidates for the degree of Doctor of Medicine must, before May first, pre- sent to the Registrar certificates of legal age. 8. Class standing and recitation marks, together with demonstrators' reports and final examinations, will be taken into consideration in the determination of the candidate's fitness to receive the degree of Doctor of Medicine. DEGREE OF MASTER OF SCIENCE IN MEDICINE Students who, upon admission to the University, have pre- sented preparatory work equivalent to the full requirement of the College of Liberal Arts, and who have completed the four 32 THE STATE UNIVEESITY OF IOWA ■ years' course in medicine, may, upon the recommendation of the faculty of the College of Medicine, be admitted to the Graduate College as candidates for the degree of Master of Science in Medicine. Such students will be expected to select their major and minor subjects under the advice of the medi- cal faculty. The terms upon which the degree will be granted are the same as those pertaining to the master's degree in gen- eral as outlined in the Announcement of the Graduate College. COMBINED COUESES Arrangements have been made with the faculty of the College of Liberal Arts for a student to receive credit in one college for work done in another, obtaining the two degrees in six instead of eight years, which would be required if each de- gree were taken independently. These combined courses are especially recommended to all students who intend to enter the profession of medicine. REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION TO COMBINED COURSES 1.

COURSES OF INSTRUCTION ANATOMY Professor Prentiss ; Dr. Lord, Dr. Fox, Dr. Woods, Mr. Cad- wallader, mr. smith Freshman Work — The class for purposes of anatomical study is divided into three sections to accommodate it to the natural divisions of the body, i. e., head and neck, arm and thorax, leg and abdomen. Section I on entrance is assigned to the study of the bones of the skull and the cervical vertebrae. It receives four demonstrations each week for five weeks, followed by an ex- amination. The head of the department quizzes this section one hour a week on the subject matter covered, using anatom- ical material on which the student demonstrates his knowl- edge. Upon completing the study of skull and vertebrae, four weeks are spent in dissecting the main structures of the head and neck. An examination on the practical work is held at the end of that period. The head of the department conducts a quiz one hour a week upon a dissected specimen, requiring each student to demonstrate his knowledge from the cadaver. The section again meets with a demonstrator for five weeks in the consideration of the osteology and joints of the arm and thorax. The section then spends four weeks dissecting the soft parts of this third of the body. In the last third of the year the work treats of the bones and joints of the leg and abdomen, and then follows the dis- section of this portion of the body. Quizzes are conducted in the same manner as mentioned in the consideration of the head and neck. THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE 35 Lectures — During the first semester the instructor con- si. lera tin- visceral anatomy in a general way and from the developmental point of view, as follows: I. Digestive tract; II. Diverticula of digestive tract; liver, salivary glands, pancreas; III. Eespiratory tract; larynx, trachea, bronchi, lungs; IV. Ductless glands; V. Genito-urinary tract; VI. Angiology; heart and its main vessels, arteries and veins. During the second semester the brain and spinal cord are considered in a general way. The lectures then treat in detail of the nerve-plexuses and major joints. The year's course of lectures is terminated with a general consideration of the skele- ton as a whole — bone composition, etc. The year's course is followed by two examinations. One is a practical examination on the bones of the entire body, the joints, and the muscular, arterial, and nervous systems. The second is a written exami- nation to test the theoretical knowledge of the student. Section II begins with the bones of the arm and thorax, then studies the leg and abdomen, and lastly the head and neck. Otherwise the work is as outlined for Section I. Section III begins with the bones of the leg and abdo- men, then studies the head and neck, and lastly, the arm and thorax. SopJiomore Work — The sophomore class is also divided into three sections. Before dissecting, the instructor meets each section three times a week for a period of four weeks and demonstrates the viscera of the part assigned, giving spe- cial attention to the perineum, inguinal and femoral canal, and both male and female genitalia. A practical examination is held at the end of the period. Five weeks is then spent dis- secting in great detail the part assigned, including the viscera upon which demonstrations have just been given. As with the freshman class there is a period of demonstrations followed by dissections, the demonstrations being now visceral instead of osteological. 36 THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA . Lectures — Two lectures a week are given during the year to the sophomore class. The course begins with the considera- tion of thoracic viscera, including general anatomy and re- gional anatomy and the application to medicine and surgery. The abdominal viscera are studied next, beginning with the digestive tract and finishing with the genito-urinary system. A series of lectures is devoted to the peritoneum considering it from the developmental and comparative point of view, illus- trating by models, lower forms of animal life, and finally with the human body. The spinal cord and brain, including the membranes, are next considered. The three sections have al- ready considered, in the demonstration periods, the gross anatomy of the brain. Cranial nerves are now considered from their origin to their distribution. The study of the sympathet- ic system follows. Finally the vascular system is treated, stress being laid upon relations, surgical importance, surface markings, etc. The study of the venous and lymphatic sys- tems terminates the course. The head of the department dem- onstrates to the class in two sections each week on the lec- tures, following this with two quizzes each week on the lec- tures and demonstrations. Practical and written examinations for advanced standing are required at the end of the course. Junior Class — At the opening of the second semester a course in applied anatomy begins. The scalp, regional anat- omy referring to the brain, face and neck, thorax and abdomen, are considered in the order mentioned. Surgical spaces are considered separately, followed by surgical anatomy of the ar- teries. The major joints are discussed, stress being laid upon their relations to the coverings. Great attention is paid to in- guinal, femoral, and perineal anatomy. Senior Class — An optional course is offered in special re- gional anatomy. The course relates especially to the surgical anatomy of the ear, nose and throat, and the eye. Other spe- cial anatomy will be taught if desired. Note: An anatomical museum, or anatomical study-room is being developed, containing prepared specimens of every sort. Specially prepared boxes are provided to hold the bones of the head, arm and thorax, and leg and pelvis. These boxes are issued to students according to the part of the body that THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE 37 they are studying. The dissection room is provided with a mounted skeleton for reference during the dissection periods. A case in the dissecting room contains carefully prepared specimens of all the major joints. These specimens are kept pliable by a special fluid. As a result of much experimentation, a method has been found for keeping the material for dissection pliable and ready for instant use without the use of cold storage and without deleterious fumes. PHYSIOLOGY Professor McClintock; Mr. Kleinsorge, Mr. Padgham The work for the medical student in physiology is graded in the first two years of the medical course, and is so arranged by combining laboratory work with lectures and recitations as to be of the most practical value to students of medicine. The purpose of the lectures, which are illustrated, is to emphasize the essential facts and such accepted theories as may be neces- sary to explain the physiology of the human organism and, so far as possible, to show how the normal functions may be changed in pathological conditions. The laboratory work is arranged so that personal observa- tion and practical application can be made by each student of the facts and theories which have been emphasized in the lec- tures. All the necessary apparatus is provided and sufficient time is spent in both the first and second years to study by laboratory observation all that is covered in the lecture work of each year. Although during the entire course the subject of patho- logical physiology is treated along with the normal, in the third year a short course is given in which an especial effort is made to emphasize the close association between the normal and ab- normal functional activity of the organs of the human body, and the application of the laws of physiology to pathological conditions. 38 THE STATE UNIVEESITY OP IOWA . *la.

Crow, Mr. Leighton, Mr. Ward The department of histology and embryology occupies the entire second floor of the newly completed medical laboratory building. This building has been designed with special ref- erence to the requirements of microscopical work. North and east exposures, ample room, and unobstructed light give ideal conditions for this line of study. The laboratories of this de- partment consist of two large rooms for general class work, a special laboratory equipped for research work, a preparation room containing a complete stock of reagents, human tissues, and tissues of lower animals, appliances such as microtomes for brain sections, paraffin, and celloidin work, paraffin bath, and electric motors with apparatus for preparing sections of teeth, bone, etc. In connection with the laboratories are rooms devoted to a library, containing the latest books and journals pertaining to histology and embryology, a museum containing specimens preserved in alcohol, and several thousand microscopic slides of stained and injected adult and embryonic tissues. Classes are divided into small sections and a sufficient number of demonstrators are present so that each student may have individual attention. The illustrative material consists of charts, diagrams, models, and blackboard-drawings. Each student prepares for himself a complete series of 150 permanent specimens, illus- trating the microscopic anatomy of the human body. Each student is provided with a compound microscope and individual locker. The lecture room is immediately adjacent to the labora- tories. It has a seating capacity of 250 and is provided with 44 THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA ' a Zeiss epidiascope,* charts, and other appliances necessary for illustrated lectures. The work in histology and embryology is under the direc- tion of the professor of anatomy and is taken up in conjunc- tion with the course in gross anatomy. The study of the subject continues through the first and second years. fl (2). Elementary Histology. 4 hrs. During the freshman year the histology of the animal tissues exclusive of the central nervous system and the spe- cial senses is covered. This will include the study of the gen- eral tissues including the digestive tract and adnexa; the geni- to-urinary tract, the vascular system, the peripheral nervous system, etc. Each laboratory period is preceded by lectures in the anatomcal department illustrating the gross appearances and their relations to the microscopic findings. Two such lec- tures a week are given by Professor Prentiss. One lecture a week on the specialized histological features is given by Dr. Fox just before the laboratory periods. Two quizzes a week.

The treatment and operating room is well equipped with instruments for opera- tions upon the eye, ear, nose, and throat and for their treat- ment. Connected with the clinical room is a clinical laboratory in which arc microscopical specimens of all the diseases of the eye, ear, nose, and throat. There is also an abundance of anatomical sections showing the pathological, the normal, and the anomalous conditions of the eye, ear, nose, and throat. These specimens are prepared and arranged so that the stu- dent may study them at his leisure. After diagnosing his case in the clinic room, he may in an adjacent room examine the gross and microscopical characteristics of the disease present. Examinations of the various secretions and discharges obtained in the clinic are made here. Bacteriological investigations may also be made in this laboratory. In the new laboratory building is a clinical labora- tory for this department. This laboratory is abundantly sup- plied with pathological specimens of diseases of the eye, ear, nose, and larynx, as well as normal anatomical specimens of these organs. These specimens have the soft parts adherent to the bone, and are hardened in formaldehyde and alcohol. The laboratory is well equipped with microscopes, microtomes, and instruments and apparatus for the dissection of specimens. The laboratory also contains specimens already dissected to which the student may refer at any time. Any senior or graduate student wishing to make a special study of these subjects is given free use of these specimens and instruments and is furnished with the anatomical material for dissection, both normal and pathological, and with material for mounting specimens, etc. Instruction in this department is given by lectures, rec- itations, demonstrations, and personal work in the clinic. The three kinds of clinics, the out-clinic, treatment-clinic, and the clinic for major operations are attended only by groups of stu- dents. By this group-method of instruction each student re- THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE 61 ivivos personal instruction at each session and at the operating clinic is able to see the operation. In the out-clinic each student is assigned one or more pa- tients whom he himself must examine and diagnose, and for whom he must recommend treatment. The instructors in charge of the clinic, discuss each new case with the student who has had charge of it, pointing out mistakes and calling attention to important features of the diagnosis and of the differential diagnosis. The treatment clinic is visited by patients who have been subject to operation and who need daily care. The students, two at a time, attend these treatment clinics and assist in the treatment, and are given demonstrations in the treatment of such cases as they cannot well handle themselves. At the operating-clinic which is held in the surgical operat- ing room of the hospital are performed only the major opera- tions on the eye, ear, nose, and throat. The entire class at tends these clinics, -groups of six students being called from time to time to witness the operations close at hand. In this way each student during the year gets a close view of all the different kinds of operatons. Special attention is given to refraction. The department is well equipped with apparatus and instruments for studying the refraction of the eye. Groups of students are given dem- onstrations on the opthalmometer, amblyometer, deviometer, etc., and are given instruction in the use of the opthalmoscopa and retinoscope. At the out-clinic students are assigned by twos to the practical consideration of refraction cases and under the direction of instructors are required to determine the error of refraction and to prescribe lenses and fit the frames, first having gone over all the objective and subjective tests. For such students as wish to take special work in re- fraction a course is given in which the finer and more intricate tests are explained, including the examination of the extra- ocular muscles and pathological conditions as they may exist in the back of the eye. Three out-clinics, three treatment-clinics, and one oper- ative-clinic are held in this department each week, in order that the class may do work in sections. 62 THE STATE UNTVEESITY OF IOWA •1.

THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE 63 15 (16). Graduate Work. Courses are offered for students who have their baccalau- reate degree, and such persons may choose either their major or minor in this department. They are allowed to take the senior work of this department during their junior medical year and then are prepared to do the advanced work during their senior year. Courses for graduate students with the degree of Doctor of Medicine are arranged to suit individual needs. The course in advanced refraction includes all special tests. Students are assigned the entire care of certain pa- tients. The record is turned in to the instructors for examina- tion and correction. Graduates are allowed to assist in out-clinics, making some of the treatments and aiding in the demonstration of certain cases. Ward classes are conducted by the head of the department and the instructors, thus making it possible for the students to follow the after-treatment carefully. DERMATOLOGY Dr. Kessler Lectures, recitations, and clinics are given during the senior year. Throughout the session one hour and a half a week. DENTISTRY Professor Breene The lectures on this subject comprise such principles of dental pathology and therapeutics as are essential to the prac- titioner of medicine.
